Having racked up an impressive 660 000 plays on the original since it’s premiere on Pete Tong on Friday night, Deadmau5’s return to melodic Progressive House for ‘The Veldt’ may very well be one of his cleverest moves thus far. That being said, the accompanying remix package was never going to be less impressive.
Not a stranger to high-end remix duties, Australia’s very own Tommy Trash returns to Mau5trap Recordings after being featured on Moguai’s recent artist album for his possibly biggest remix to date. Borrowing the original’s unremitting chord progression and up-and-coming vocalist Chris James’ downright divine top line for something of a signature remix on the rapidly rising Aussie’s behalf, Thomas Olsen’s take on ‘The Veldt’ is not one to be compared to the original, but rather seen as an alternative version for clubs and stadiums alike.
